What abducted Chibok Girls said in Boko Haram’s Latest Video



Following their release of 82 of the Chibok Schoolgirls kidnapped from their dorm rooms in April 2014, Boko Haram has released two videos – one showing one of its commanders swapped for the girls, and another showing some of the girls still in their captivity.

The videos were sent to journalist Ahmed Salkida, who tweeted some of the translation.

Salkida tweeted:

The video has Shuaibu Moni, one of the swapped BH commanders issuing threats to Nigerian authorities and it’s president.

The commander, in the video, declared that it is not true that only 5 commanders were released, warning of imminent bombing of Abuja.

He further said that there’s been no ‘sulhu’ dialogue with govt and there won’t be. Only war is between us, he declared.

The Chibokgirl that spoke in the (second) video today, holding an AK47 rifle is Maida Yakubu.

The girl with the rifle is seen in the video saying that she and the other girls were not forced to marry their captors, adding that they refused to be released during negotiations.

Esther Yakubu, Maida’s mother told members of the Bring Back Our Girls advocacy group that it was indeed her daughter who spoke in the video.

This was confirmed by Aisha Yesufu, one of the leaders of the Bring Back Our Girls (BBOG) Advocacy Group.

She said it was ironic that Maida, who urged the Federal Government to rescue them in a proof-of-life video last year could be saying the opposite today.

“The girl told us how much they had suffered and that they wanted to come back home; and this time, she is saying she does not want to come back home and she wants her parents to join her. We felt it was necessary to pay a visit of encouragement to the parents and we are just coming from Esther Yakubu’s house,” Yesufu said.

Their conversation was in the Hausa language after which the girl spoke in the local Chibok dialect.

The unidentified male voice in his introductory remarks said, “These ones are among the young girls of Chibok who say they are not returning to their parents, but would rather stay back to follow Allah’s religion. Now, we are asking them why.”

Here is a transcript of the conversation between the male voice and Maida. (Via PUNCH).

What is your name?

Veiled girl with AK 47: My name is Maida Yakubu

Which town are you from?


What are the names of your parents?

My mother’s name is Esther Muntari; my father’s name is Yakubu Kaba.

Which school were you attending?

GSS Chibok.

Why don’t you want to return to your parents?

I don’t want to return because they are living in the city of infidels, we want them to come and follow this religion for us to have rest in heaven.

Some people are saying that you are being forced into marriage is this so?

No. It is not so. Among us are those who agree and accept get married.

What is your message to your parents?

My message to them is for them to repent and follow Allah’s religion for our salvation.

What is your appeal to Nigerians?

My call to Nigerians is that they should leave the book that is not that of Allah and follow the Sunnah (Sayings and deeds of the Prophet) Allah’s religion will move forward whether you like it or not.

If you don’t agree you will die in your misery.

She switched to the local Chibok language for the last few seconds of the video.

The Nigerian military has however, dismissed the threat as empty.

      It truly is.
      If you have met with the real Muslim people you would have seen this as just another way of downcasting this religion. There are good Muslims and bad Muslims just as there are good Christians ,Buddhist and the rest and bad ones. Bad things happen under some people’s religion and that’s okay because “humans”.

      No matter what, let Islam have a rest. I have great Muslim friends and I can’t seem to wrap my head around all of these propaganda. I’m a Christian and a jehova one by the way.

      Madam Sugabelly with all your “exposure” you should know better than to mock or criticise ANY religion based on the horrible actions of a few misguided people, thank you.

    Is it just me or is it terror I see behind the veil?

    Maybe we put politics aside to empathise with them. They didn’t ask for this.

    May God help us and help these poor innocent girls brainwashed by extremist psychopaths that obviously do NOT know the first thing about faith or religion.

    For those who were berating the government in an earlier story for not releasing the 82 to their parents, this is the reason – they need to be evaluated, debriefed and thoroughly assessed before being released back to society. I feel the pain of their parents but a lot of brainwashing must have taken place over the last 3 years. What’s to say there aren’t sleeper agents planted by bh among the 82? Even if they are all harmless, these girls have gone through so much for so long, it’s foolish to think they can just reintegrate and go back to their former lives without any issues. I cannot even imagine what they have been through – they will need major counselling (unfortunately for their parents their presence might make it worse) and even this will likely not be enough, only God can heal them. We also have to keep praying for these young innocent ones whose minds have been poisoned by this evil and pray that the Holy Spirit opens their eyes to see the light of Christ in the midst of the darkness that is all around them. I pray none of these girls ends their life by succumbing to the allure of ‘jihad’ or suicide bombing. Jesus, please take the wheel…
